Bishop Middleham Parish Council
Welcome to the Bishop Middleham Parish Council website.
Bishop Middleham is situated approximately 10 miles to the south east of Durham City. In 1072 William the Conqueror built the Castle at Durham, and Castles at Stockton and Darlington. Being situated in an almost central position to all three, Middleham became a favourite seat for the early Bishops, their middle home, thus deriving its name.
It is a village with approximately 550 houses and rural in nature. The centre of the Village is a Conservation area which includes the 13th Century Church that looks out over the Village.
The Parish Council consists of 9 Councillors and a part time Parish Clerk. It meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at the Village hall at 7.00pm, and members of the Public are welcome to attend.
If there is anything you would like to see on this website please send details to the parish clerk for consideration.
